Using FSA to pay COBRA premiums from prior employer


Recommended Posts

You can't use an FSA to pay for any health insurance premiums, even for health coverage under the plan of the employer that sponsors the FSA.  In contrast, for example, you can use distributions from an HSA or an HRA to pay for COBRA coverage.  I believe the IRS publication on FSA covers this.  It is also in the proposed regs, which of course are not binding.  It is, however, the long-standing position of the IRS.
